Modular Portable Stage
Designed as versatile modular stage platforms, our Spider Deck750 feature a simple-to-use deck-to-deck locking clamp system which performs the dual function of pulling multiple platforms together tightly and limiting their independent vertical movement to ensure a flat and even stage surface.
Modular stage systems provide you the freedom to include/remove any number of single platforms from a large stage build to accommodate the available floor space and the required performance area. This is especially useful for touring performers as the overall stage size can quickly be altered to suit different venues with zero compromises to its functionality.
For use as staggered choir risers and for music stages with raised drum risers, the modular design of our lightweight portable stage allows for different heights of riser leg systems to be used at the same time, allowing for any number of stage layout variations.

Why would I use lightweight staging?
Lightweight staging can be used for many applications,including; live band performances, school activities, conferences, and church use. It is highly portable and is usually selected when the stage needs to be easily transported in smaller vehicles between venues, or when it needs to be stored in smaller areas. The low weight makes the set-up process simple, as components can be moved with ease and less people are required to construct the stage.
What height are lightweight staging platforms?
Our riser type stage systems are available in 3 fixed heights of 20cm, 40cm and 60cm, to suit all settings. These risers are interchangeable with the stage decks so a selection of heights can be achieved with the same decks.
How do I assemble lightweight staging?
Lightweight staging is quick and easy to assemble. Each stage panel connects with a riser of the desired height that clips onto the stage deck. Once the decks are assembled a locking clamp is used between the decks to fit the individual units together. This versatile system enables you to make any shape and size stage.
How expensive is lightweight staging?
The cost of lightweight staging depends on the size and height of the platform needed. There are a range of finishes, including black anti-slip, wood, and custom finishes such as veneers, and carpet which have a higher cost. The price will also vary if popular extras are needed, such as handrails, steps and stage skirts. Please get in touch with our team at Stage Concepts so we can discuss your requirements and give you a cost estimate.
What shape stage can I make with lightweight staging?
With our lightweight staging, you can create any size or shape stage platform, to suit every venue. We offer 1x1m and 2x1m lightweight stage platforms, and these can be easily clamped together to make your desired size and shape.
What weight can lightweight staging take?
Our lightweight staging has a sturdy design and is made of high-quality aluminium, so can take an impressive weight load. A 1x1m stage platform has a load bearing capability of 500kg/m2. They also have the benefit of being portable and lightweight, weighing only 12kg.
What is a portable stage?
Portable stage systems are designed to offer a professional stage platform for live performances and events which can be easily put together and dismantled for transport and storage.
These lightweight portable stage decks are usually an aluminium framework with tough plywood tops and easy-to-fit pole legs or riser base systems. They are extremely simple to use and require no specialist tools or experience, making them ideal for many different situations.
What are stage risers?
Though the term stage riser is used as a general term for stage platforms by many suppliers, this is incorrect. A stage riser is specifically the type of collapsible leg system found on our lightweight Spider Deck 750 portable stage. These stage risers come in 3 heights of 20cm, 40cm and 60cm and come supplied to fit either a 1m x 1m platform or a 2m x 1m platform.
Unlike the scaffold pole type fixed height legs that come with the heavier-duty stage systems, stage risers use an umbrella-type folding mechanism which allows them to collapse down for easy transport. They unfold to form a rigid, multi-legged base that many users prefer for its compact nature and lower cost.
Can you build your own stage?
Well yes obviously building a stage from scratch is an option, though this was only really ever done in older schools and theatres, and were usually built completely from wood as a permanent installation.
For portable stage systems, it works out far more cost effective to use a product such as our PD Deck750 platforms, and will also ensure that your stage build meets all the necessary safety requirements for weight loading and fire regulations.
These portable stage systems are purposely designed to be put together and taken apart thousands of times with tough extruded aluminium frames and a range of easy-to-use clamp fixings to make each build a quick and painless experience.
